DVB 3D-TV is a new standard that partially came out at the end of 2010 which included techniques and procedures to send a three-dimensional video signal through actual DVB transmission standards (Cable, Terrestrial or Satellite). Nevertheless, there have been some experiments with MVC 3D broadcast by Fraunhofer society over 2nd generation DVB (DVB-T2, DVB-C2 and DVB-S2).
DVB now defines a new standard for 3D video broadcast: DVB 3D-TV.

Currently there is a commercial requirement text for 3D TV broadcasters and Set-top box manufacturers, but no technical information is in there. For future service compatible (CSC) 3DTV, signal that a 3D version of a 2D service or event is being simulcast, and vice versa will be needed.
This is termed Frame Compatible.

Currently there is a commercial requirement text for 3D TV broadcasters and Set-top box manufacturers, but no technical information is in there. It must be also possible to include in the broadcast signal information about the pixel arrangement used to decimate the master HDTV full samples/line pictures to create the anamorphic version, if 3D is available.

Nowadays 3D television technology is already in its first steps regarding its standardization, now the major 3D market is in theaters and Blu-ray Disc players with stereoscopic systems, but in the near future it will be extended to diffusion, and later Free viewpoint television will come into our homes, which means the need of new coding and transmission standards.

This is made by a spatial multiplex that combines the left and right video sequences in one HD stream which is coded with H.264 as a single image.

Stereoscopy

Regarding how a signal once it's decoded is sent to the display, current stereoscopic systems use a frame-sequential 3D signal.

This allows to handle video as normal HD video using typical channels and interfaces like HDMI, which is possible in this 1.4a version.
